Messaging menu support/App Indicator
Hey all,

First off, awesome job on the initial release. TF2 runs better on my machine than it ever did on Windows 7! Intel SandyBridge drivers and all.

I do have a question -- is Ubuntu messaging menu support planned in the future? It's a great feature that other chat clients make use of, it would be a missed opportunity to add integration at some point.

Also, I installed Steam Linux on a 32-bit machine (running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) and noticed that it has an app indicator. 64-bit machines don't seem to get the same app indicator. Is there a particular reason for this?

Thanks!

Yes, it’s because the system doesn’t have a 32 bit library installed for the support

I'll add the Ubuntu messaging support as a request.
